With Hawaii now re-opened to tourism without the arduous requirement of quarantine, Hawaiian Airlines is ramping up its service to the Mainland, including a resumption of the longest domestic flight in the USA.
Hawaiian Airlines Will Resume Full Mainland Route Network, Including Longest Domestic Flight In USA
By the end of the year, Hawaiian Airlines will resume is full pre-pandemic network to 13 cities in the United States from Honolulu’s Daniel K. Inouye International Airport (HNL).
That will include a resumption of twice-weekly service to Boston (BOS), the longest domestic flight in the USA at 5,095 miles. Service begins on December 18, 2020 with flight time totaling 11 hours, 35 minutes flying westbound and 9 hours, 30 minutes flying eastbound. An Airbus A330-200 will operate the flight with 18 lie-flat beds in first class, 68 seats in premium economy, and 192 seats in economy class.

Hawaiian Airlines will also resume service to New York (JFK) on December 15, with 3x-weekly service that will also utilize an A330-200, and service from Long Beach (LGB), using an A321. With that, Hawaiian Airlines will once again service all 13 of its pre-pandemic cities on the Mainland, including:
- Las Vegas
- Long Beach
- Los Angeles
- New York
- San Diego
- San Francisco
- San Jose
Last week, Hawaii began exempting travelers from its 14-day quarantine with proof of a negative COVID-19 test not older than 72 hours from the final leg of departure to Hawaii. Only tests approved by the State of Hawaii are accepted.
Mileage seats are available on most routes, but particularly poor redemption values for premium cabins.
Hawaii is once again ramping up for tourism. With Hawaiian Airlines resuming service to its full Mainland network, you can once again fly on the longest domestic flight in the USA.
